Congrats David for your oral presentation at the UC Davis Clinical Translational Science Center 14th Annual Scholars Symposium on May 4th!
Title: Characterization, In vitro evaluation, and techno-economic analysis of a plant-made alpha-1 antitrypsin
Description: Alpha-1 antitrypsin (AAT) deficiency is one of the most prevalent predispositioning factors for development of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. At this time, the only available treatment is weekly infusion with AAT purified from human plasma. I seek to produce, characterize, and evaluate a plant-made, recombinant AAT for eventual use in treatment of AAT deficiency.
